Ok, so last night I tried to-recreate one of my favourite Thai dishes. Phad Thai. Now I am pretty impressed with how this came up, plus it bundles more healthier then the one you get in restaurants which can be up to 1000 calories. Now before I go into the recipe. I hadn’t planned to do a post on it or anything, and I honestly didn’t think it would be that good. So there are no pictures. I will make it again soon and add some pictures. So try to use your imagination.
The dish serves 3-4 depending on how big you have your portions.
450g turkey breast chopped
150g brown rice
2 large onions
1 cup of finely chopped red cabbage
1 tbl toasted sesame oil
3 tbl light soy sauce
155g bean sprouts
Handful of sugar snap peas
handful of frozen sweetcorn
1 cup of broccoli
2 cloves of garlic
1 shallot onion
1tsp sweetener or Stevia
2 tbl organic peanut butter
3/4 cup of coconut milk
1/2 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp of ground ginger
OK so you can also add prawns to your mix. We forgot to add the prawns…
1. Firstly get your rice on and let that cook. (follow back of packet for guidance)
2. Using a wok or large frying pan, add the sesame oil and chuck the turkey meat in and fry off.
3. Once the turkey is starting to cook add your onions and cabbage. On a low heat fry off your onion, cabbage and turkey.
4. Then we add the chilli, cayenne, ginger,sugar and soy sauce to the mix. Crush your garlic cloves and stir the mixture all together in the wok.
5. Once the turkey is cooked add the peanut butter and coconut milk and give it a good mix, creating the sauce.
6. At this point you can thrown in the broccoli, sweetcorn, sugar snaps and bean sprouts. Put the lid on the wok and on a low heat let the contents infuse and simmer.
7. I then chopped up a small shallot and added it to the mix, then squeezed half a lime into it. Save the other half a lime, for a wedge garnish.
8. Once your rice is cooked, serve up your rice, and spoon the contents on top. Top with a lime wedge. (squeeze it onto the dish its amazing). Grab your chopsticks and enjoy.
You can add anything to this, like carrots, peanuts, leeks all sorts. Just have fun with it.
